Profile: Old Town Edinburgh

Profile: Old Town Edinburgh

Old Town refers to the oldest part of Scotland's capital city. Its ancient topography, known as "crag and tail," dates back to the ice age. Old castles and centuries-old theaters await your perusal. The Royal Mile features most of the shops, bars, cafés, and bars that wend and wind through small alleys.

National Museum of Scotland, St. Giles Cathedral, and the Scottish Parliament are among the most notable and historic ways to discover the history of this charming country. You can walk everywhere in Old Town, following in the footsteps of kings, invading armies, the condemned, and the celebrated.

    Great Stay in Edinbourgh Stay Central Hotel

    Our stay was for 2 nights. Room was clean & roomy. Location was perfect... walking distance to museums, Royal Mile & Grass Market. It is directly connected to the Three Sisters Pub, which had a nice atmosphere. Despite being this close to a pub it was quiet in our room. Staff were exceptionally helpful & pleasant. I especially appreciated their assistance with checking in for my flight home to Canada. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

    Great location in the city, but wasn't ready for the bar and big screen TV you had to pass by to get to the front door of the hotel. It was noisy on the weekend with FIFA and Wimbledon on the screen. Music and dancing drunk people. Was a mixed crowd, just not our scene. Our room window backed onto the garbage and recycle of the party square - also noisy. Was very clean, friendly staff and comfortable beds. I wouldn't stay there again.

    Stay here.

    We arrived late in the evening but were still greated by friendly helpful staff. The hotel was modern and light with lovely rooms. The tv was large, there was a coffee machine a smegg fridge and a seperate kettle with ample tea and coffee. Large bottles of water were also available if wanted.The bed was hugh and comfortable with soft and firm pillows. The location is handy for Edinburgh centre and although breakfast was outsourced to a local cafe/bar it is not far to walk and was good quality and great helpful staff. The only drawback was that my partner found two pubic hairs on the bathroom floor. This hotel is reasonably priced and very central to Edinburgh with great rooms and staff. I would stay here again and will recommend this place to anyone staying in Edinburgh.

    The people working there was really nice the bedroom was modern and had an amazing shower, it’s very central and you can walk to all turístico places. A few things it the room didn’t work properly and they were building in the hotel and it was very noisy in the early morning, it difficult to sleep.

    Stay Central - it’s totally worth it

    Amazing location in Old Town, the hotel lobby is really stylish and the rooms are clean, spacious and fitted with loads of mod cons (being able to play music from your phone into bedroom and bathroom via Bluetooth was very cool!) tea and coffee, soap and shampoo and a hairdryer are provided. Easy check in and check out. Highly recommend!

    Friendly and bustling

    Comfortable and clean . Hard to find location and somewhat noisy at night, but then again it is central and attached to a pub.
